Historic vehicles on show at Cumbrian stately home

THE roar of vintage vehicle engines will reverberate around the grounds of a stately home, as an historic show rolls into north Cumbria.

The Lakeland Historic Vehicle Show is being held at Hutton-in-the-Forest, near Penrith, next Sunday.

More than 300 classic cars, bikes, vans and trucks will be on display.

Organisers are promising a “perfect day of motoring nostalgia”, including displays of commercial vehicles and classic Land Rovers, motor awards, an auto jumble for anyone looking for a bargain or a rare, discontinued part, and an arena and commentaries throughout the day.

Exhibitors will also be happy to chat about their passion, to the knowledgeable and beginners alike.

This is just one of 25 events being organised by Mark Woodward this year, and is the 12th time he’s been welcomed back to the home of Lord and Lady Inglewood near Penrith.

He said: “I organise a lot of different shows but I always love coming to Hutton. There’s something special about this venue.

“Set in the heart of Cumbria, classic car enthusiasts love to dust off their pride and joys and drive them up through the Lakes to show them off at this celebrated country house.”

The Lakeland Historic Vehicle Show is part of an exciting events calendar at the venue.

For a small extra cost, visitors can explore the house, and are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy in the 100 acres of rolling parkland.

There will be a barbeque and ice cream outside, while light lunches, sandwiches and teas will be available from the Cloisters Tea Room.

The Lakeland Historic Vehicle Show runs from 10am until 4pm. Admission costs £6.50 for adults and £3 for children. For more information or to exhibit your classic vehicle, call Mark Woodward on 016974 51882 or visit
